The Walls are Closing In paints a vivid picture of a chilling future which feels all too believeable in today's climate. An insular, authoritarian regime rules over a brittle, fearful United States. Our protagonist, refreshingly a scientist, has a legitimate purpose working within the restricted buffer zone bordering the towering wall now dividing her country from the rest of the world. It's likely to get her in trouble.
